The seventh season hopes to build on the success of the sixth season that had a record prize pool of nearly $10,000,000 with more than 4,000 players and 1,000 online qualifiers. The sixth season was a big improvement over Season 5. Hopefully , this next season will be even better.

We have also standardised all Main Event buy-ins across the year at $1,700, except for the Grand Final at $3,000, and raised the buy-in of the NLH Unlimited Re-entry event from $500 to $1,100.

Latin Series of Poker, LSOP, Changing the Way Poker Tournaments are Played

The Latin Series of Poker Millions, a $1 million guaranteed tournament happening in Panama this March 2014,will revolutionize  poker tournaments  by spreading the Day 1 tables through several casinos all over Latin America.

“It’s a $1 million guaranteed tournament and it costs just $850 to get into,” stated the LSOP administration. The goal is that by hosting in several cities across Latin America , a larger showing will happen. Maybe the $1,000,000 guarantee will exceed expectations. The major tournament is from March 7th to the 15th but day one is scattered across several cities with a buy-in of $850.

So instead of players needing to go to Panama and put up money for a hotel and expenses , they will instead get that out of the way and be in the money right away for the next day. Day 2 happens in Panama but Day 1 is a series of poker tournaments across Latin America several weeks before Day 2.

While Day 2 continues in Panama, Day 1 events are schedule to take place several weeks earlier at a number of casinos around the world. Locations for the Day 1 tournaments will be .

Poker players who sail through Day 1 in their city will earn a seat at the Day 2 table in Panama. Advancing players will be in the money right away and will move to Panama with the chip stack they ended with on Day 1. Day 1A will also be held in Panama for players who prefer to play the tournament in Panama.

Several online sites are giving away packages or have satellite seats including America’s Cardroom, BetCRIS, Ya Poker and Black Chip Poker.

888 Holdings Expects Major Rise in Revenue with Ease on Internet Gambling

888 Holdings is expecting a record rise in revenue due to the ease of internet gambling. Several states have approved internet gambling and more to follow. 888 is postioned to benefit big time from these changes. It allready has an online casino in Nevada with Delaware and New Jersey to follow shortly.

“In 2014, we should start to see some meaningful revenues come through,” Chief Executive Brian Mattingley said, talking about prospects in the American market.

Tax hungry states are lifting rules to get more revenue. Internet gambling was banned in 2006 by former President Bush. Major markets like New York and California are the prized markets because of the population. Online casino operators will feast on these states like sharks.

In a trading statement, 888 said group revenues rose two percent to $94 million in the third quarter and that it was trading in line with its expectations.

Shares in the company were slightly up, 0.24 percent, to 164.4p at 0730 GMT, valuing it at around 575 million pounds ($918 million).

Analyst Ivor Jones of Numis noted that revenues had been increasing more rapidly earlier in the year.

“Growth in the U.S. is coming along just in time to offset slowing growth in some of the current core products,” he said.

Runner Runner – Movie Themed on Online Poker

Runner Runner is out and playing in movie theaters. It stars Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake. The movie synopsis is:

Richie Furst used to have a lucrative career on Wall Street; this history prevents him from receiving tuition assistance at Princeton, so he funds his master’s degree by referring students to online gambling, for which he receives a cut. After the dean threatens to expel him for these activities, Richie tries to win his tuition using his excellent poker skills in online gambling, but he loses all his money to a cheater, something he is able to prove by statistics.

Richie goes to Costa Rica to confront Ivan Block, who runs the biggest empire of online gambling websites in the world, including the one Richie lost his money on. After Ivan sees the statistics, he finds coders have coded the software to allow them to cheat. After firing those involved, Ivan tells Richie he’ll pay him millions per year for him to assist with the site work. Richie slowly begins a romantic relationship with Rebecca Shafran, Ivan’s ex-love affair, and Ivan displays no objections to this. FBI agent Shavers kidnaps Richie and threatens to ruin his life in various ways if he does not assist in a conviction of Ivan Block. Shavers cannot do anything legally as he has no authority in Costa Rica, but he takes advantage of this to use tactics that would be illegal/unethical for law enforcement inside the United States. Ivan tells Richie that everyone in the organization ends up confronted by Shavers at some point.

Over time, Ivan’s organization is revealed to be less than ethical. He sends Richie to bribe Costa Rica gaming director Herrera with too small of a payment, which leads to Richie being beaten. Ivan tells him it comes with the territory of such a wealthy career. Ivan throws Herrera and his bodyguard into a lake of crocodiles, but pulls them out before they are eaten. Ivan has Richie blackmail a gaming affiliate with videos of his infidelity to force him to sign with Ivan. Richie’s friend Andrew Cronin, who works on the software design for Ivan, finds that Ivan is running a Ponzi scheme; the players’ accounts have no actual money, and Ivan uses the money as his own bank account, keeping just enough to allow players to cash out when they need to. Cronin disappears and is later found nearly beaten to death. Fearing Richie might be having a change of heart, Ivan buys the massive poker debts of Richie’s father and brings him to Costa Rica, using him as a hostage against Richie.

When Richie tries to leave the country, Shavers has drugs planted in his bag and offers to overlook it if Richie agrees to cooperate. A local police officer reveals that the police dislike Ivan but that he would buy his way out of any trouble and destroy whoever tried to take him down. Thanks to Rebecca betraying Ivan, Richie finds out that Ivan has been swindling him all along; Ivan is about to move his operations out of Costa Rica, and from the start he wanted to leave Richie behind as the fall guy. Richie gives out massive bribes to all local officials, including low-level police officers. When the movement day hits, Ivan calls to satirically apologize to Richie, telling him he’ll be arrested, as Ivan flies away on a private jet.

When Ivan lands, he finds he has been betrayed: the bribed pilot has instead flown him to Puerto Rico, American territory. Shavers arrests him as Richie and Rebecca fly away on the private jet. Shavers says they’re free to go because Richie left a flash drive with him containing sufficient evidence to convict Ivan.
